- There is a shortage of well-trained travel professionals. Although the Internet has created a more informed consumer, consumers and business professionals seek out the help of trained, experienced travel professionals when booking family travel, detail-oriented or special interest trips.
- There are new opportunities for specialization. More travellers today are looking for the road less travelled rather than a cookie-cutter holiday. There is a demand to accommodate consumers' desires for new and exotic adventures, niche and group travel experiences.
- Clients want to consult with a real person about their vacation plans and ideas. Faceless entities cannot give you the security and confidence you get when dealing with a real person, nor the personal touch when it comes to booking your vacation.
It is an exciting time to be in the travel industry. According to the World Trade Organization, tourism ranks as one of the world's top five fastest growing industries.
